Now, I recently had a live, manual in person fantasy draft, to which one of the participants asked to just be auto drafted because they were out of the state. I'm wondering if I handled this correctly.

I began by just taking the highest "ranked" player according to Yahoo for their team. Then, to make sure they had all the required positions filled up I just took the highest ranked player who could fill one of their positions. Then I filled their bench in the same way I took their first few players.

Now, my question is, one or two of the players drafted for them I knew to be on the DL or not on the DL but injured. Should I have made a judgement call and given them the next best player or was this the proper, fair way to do it?

You shouldn't have made any judgement calls. The way you did it was right. You had a system from the beginning and stuck with it throughout the draft.

Unless they had preranked their players and given you their updated list, that's how it would've ended up had the draft happened online, so I wouldn't worry about it.

Me neither. Though to be honest, I'm still waiting for film versions of my four favorite villains: Killer Croc, Nite-Wing (not to be confused with Nighwing), Tally Man, and most of all Harley Quinn.

I'd also like to see The Question make an appearance... (though I guess I'll happily settle for Rorschach in the Watchmen movie coming up...)

/end off-topic comic book dorkiness
:oops:

I can see why people don't like doing it for money cause you have conflicts with pitchers against your favorite team and whatnot. It's one of the reasons I generally don't do fantasy sports for money myself.

But if you're into it as a hobby, it is a good way of keeping up with what's going on in baseball or whatever sport you're playing. It gives me a reason to actually pay attention to players in other divisions, seeing as we only play other NL teams 6-7 times and most AL teams either three times or not at all.

1) Couldn't you have just clicked the "autopick" checkbox in the Yahoo draft room?
2) Did you also have a team in the same league that you were drafting? If you did, that's a major conflict of interest.

The way I interpreted it, it was a live, offline draft. If that was the case, then he did the best he could do.
